Do you need planning permission for a Greenhouse?

Planning consent is not always needed for Glasshouses or Greenhouses which are intended solely for domestic use. However, there are many circumstances where planning permission will be required, such as for listed properties and national parks.


You may also need permission if the Greenhouse will be disproportionately large in relation to your existing property, for example when building one of our bigger Victorian-style Greenhouses. As instances will vary widely from customer to customer, we recommend you check this with your local planning authority.


We have many Heritage, Modern, Custom Made, and Victorian Greenhouse structures that fall under different levels of planning permission, depending on size. Get in touch with us now to discuss your options.
